For Sale

I will always deal with you honestly. There is nothing more heartbreaking than a new relationship with a horse based on misinformation that then falls apart. I will tell you everything I know about the horses I have for sale and continue to be a support for you after your purchase as you form a bond with your new horse. 

Peaches 2008 Paint Pony

Peaches- 15 year old mare. 14.2h, amazing jumper, we have jumped her up to 3ft, but in lessons she usually jumps 2'3-2'6. She has been used in beginner- intermediate lessons for the past 3 years and is ready for her own person. Has done some dressage training with Makendra. Gentle, easy to catch & handle, tack, trailer, & farrier. She has an auto change in the ring and will trail ride out alone but prefers to go in company. Possible foxhunter, she has recently completed an obstacle judge trail ride with a young rider & derby xc at Loch Moy.

Out in a mixed herd, bottom of the pecking order, barefoot, super sound, only maintenance is daily Succeed supplement, and loves to be loved on. Will sell to an intermediate+ rider. 


Freckles- 2003 POA Pony

Freckles- 20yr old, 13.3h POA pony mare. She is the perfect age for a pony, tons of experience, and 10+ years left of riding left in her. This pony can JUMP! She takes care of her rider to the fence and has jumped up to 3'3 but in lessons is often at 2'3-2'6. She needs a strong leg on the flat,she will ignore a weak or very short leg (but not to a jump- she's 100% automatic over jumps). Beautiful appaloosa coloring, super sound, front shoes, great on trail with other horses, loads like a pro. For an intermediate rider this pony will take you places. She is so over beginners. She is not a "love on me" type pony, prefering to be workman like and respected. She will not tolerate a kicking rider for very long, and will start to ignore them or see if she can halt and shake them off- an educated leg is a must and she will reward you with being a great partner. Might excell at beagling or foxhunting as well.

`What's New?

July 2023- Adult Riding Camp at Grove Point Stables in MD.

~Sunflowers, trails, riding in the bay, yummy food, ax- throwing, and horsemanship were part of the fun for Makendra with her horse Nugget and Angela (a Tsaheylu boarder) with her horse Langley. After lots of preparation to get our horses fit, and logistics to get there, we ended up having a wonderful time!

    6 Horse & Riders completed at the Loch Moy Rock n Roll XC Derby. So Much Fun and ribbons to boot!


  After welcoming my son's arrival in November, lessons are starting back up as the weather has been wonderfully warm. The footing in the ring has been perfect. As you can see you're never too young ( or too old) to start riding!


Tsaheylu Farm moved from Marshall to a lovely horse farm in Philomont August 2019. The entire operation is run by Makendra and the emphasis is on teaching. Lessons are taught on either Makendra’s personally trained horses, or your own. There is limited boarding for student’s horses. The farm boasts a large outdoor ring, access to trails,  13+ acres of pasture, airy aisle way & stalls, 2 wash stalls with warm water, an organized heated tack room, and heated office, picnic tables with shade cover, and most importantly a wonderful, supportive community. The Philomont General Store is a 30sec drive or 2min walk down a gravel road, along with the Philomont Playground & Community Center. Easy access from rt7, rt50, or rt267 (the toll rd). 

1-20-2018- Roo competed in his first real show, 2'6 Green Hunters at Frying Pan Park. He earned a 4th & 6th but truly it was about dealing with the atmosphere and get his show legs. He's pointed to the jumpers, but starting in the quieter hunters. Plus he's quite a stunning show hunter.

Jan 6 2016- Ribbons and Lace is tied for 1st place nationally in the 2015 RPSI filly inspections. Here she is in the most recent Warmbloods Today issue. So excited about this filly's future!!

Oct 6 2015- Rubichez won the 2015 USEA FEH inagural Free Jump Championship. He impressed the judges with his smoooth, powerful canter and breezed over the jumps. This is his photo in Eventing Magazine 

August 15 2015- Lacey's newest filly Ribbons & Lace (aka Roxette) was amazing at her RPSI inspection, winning Site Champion Foal and Gold Premium with a score of 8.6!  Lacey has a huge trot but Roxette was passing her in trot that just floated across the ground. Plus Roxette is sweet, kind, and has a wonderful sense to her. Love this girl!

May 16 2015  Lacey had her baby and it's a girl! Beautiful markings, this girl is vibrant and well put together. I wouldn't change a thing about her. Labor went great, although Lacey tried to sneak out to pasture to have her baby and I caught her just before her water broke. We will name her soon.

Faith and Juliet both got 6th place over all at the Redgate Farm Horse Show Year End Awards banquet. It was a wonderful time and the girls felt very proud. Plus they got a great goodie bag and a big ribbon!

Nov 2 2014

Rubichez competed at the USEA FEH East Coast Championships. He placed 4th in the 2yr old Colt division and was very well behaved. I will most likely be heading him towards the jumper or dressage ring in the future but the FEH program is wonderful to get the young ones out and used to the show atmosphere.

Upperville Horse Show- Leadline

Twinkles took both Juliet and Faith to Upperville leadline this June. Both girls got a coveted rainbow ribbon and had a blast. On to walk/trot classes for Faith.


April 25 2014


Juliet and Faith Burns rode in the Lead Line division at the Philomont Horse Show. Faith placed 2nd, and at Juliet's first show she placed second and third, but the lollipop was the most appreciated prize! Twinkles was a star too!

Freestyle x Nabiola Filly is Here!


Nabiola had a black filly by Freestyle at 1:40AM Friday morning! She has two hind socks, a large star, and a super sweet disposition. The labor went smoothly and Nabiola is a wonderful, attentive mother. The filly loves racing back and forth in her pasture, until she plops down for a rest with her mama standing guard. The other broodmares, who will have foals next spring, look jealous:)
